Many people know that bluegill and crappie fishing from the bank in the spring can be so much fun, especially when you’re catching big crappie & bluegill! In this episode I’m fishing with a trout magnet jig header and a gulp minnow under a float. After I caught a steady amount of bluegill, all of a sudden I caught a monster 12.5 inch crappie! I also caught a black nosed crappie as well. It really was a great day of spring fishing from the bank despite the water being a bit on the cold side.
Unfortunately in this video, we see how cold Water means the Bass Fishing Stinks right now, so we’re doing a surprise giveaway instead! It has taken a good week at least for the water to get back up to 53 degrees. I try quite a few casts just in case but no dice. So I’m waiting for the water to warm up so the bass fishing will improve. So for this episode, instead of fishing, I’m doing a giveaway for my dedicated subscribers. How do we do that? If you left a comment on my last video you were automatically entered. Since it seems like so many people are into sensationalized clickbait, I know the true fans will watch the realistic grind that fishing really is.
In this episode I am float fishing with a grub for some springtime Yellow Bass and Bluegill. I am able to crate that grub profile using a lead jig head and half a honey worm. Since the water is still cold from all the rain we’ve had recently, I end up deciding that panfish are a more likely catch. Not only did I catch a yellow bass, but I also caught some really big bluegill. If you have a chance to go out and get some fishing in and you want to avoid that skunk, maybe try something that looks like a grub.
In this episode we see realistic spring fishing during a cold front and tricky fishing conditions sure can make things tough. The water temperature has dropped about two degrees since my last bass fishing video. It seems that now the bass are nowhere to be found. I still find it amazing how just a few degrees can really change fish behavior. I really had to grind it out just to catch four fish today. I really hope the weather improves so the water temperature continues to rise. If it would ever stop raining I might be able to catch more fish.
In this episode we see my best bass fishing day so far this year! In this video I talk about and show which lure catches all these bass. I still can’t believe how many bass I caught in such a short amount of time. I found these bass in the back of a creek feeding on shad. The water temperature was 53 degrees and I was really happy the fish are finally starting to come shallow. I not only caught a bunch of largemouth bass, I also caught one huge white bass. Some of you might be surprised that I am not using a red lure to catch all these bass.
This episode features some Realistic Fishing in the early spring with an easy fishing rig for cold water. You can be out there catching fish as they come shallow with a simple float and hook rig. Keep in mind that doesn’t mean you wont have to look for them though. I didn’t find any fish near the shallow rock bluffs but I found these fish near a shallow water weed edge. As the water warms up more and more the fish will come to shallow water. I hope the water temperature continues to rise sooner than later.
In this episode I’m going through some bargain bin fishing lures and flea market fishing finds. On a recent shopping trip I scored some great lures out there including some unique crankbaits and soft plastics. I also go through some viewer mail and pick a winner from the 60k subscriber video. I love finding good deals on fishing gear and lures, especially if I haven’t it seen before. I’m really impressed by the craws I found. I’m also excited to find a Rapala Deep Diver.
Interested in learning how to catch big bluegill on Crappie Nibbles? This episode is a beginner level fishing video that shows how it can be done. Although the bait you select can be important at times, finding the fish is always more important. I end up leaving an empty fishing spot and moving to a more productive area and the crappie nibbles started catching fish. So don’t worry. just because you aren’t getting bites on a bait, that doesn’t mean it won’t work. Sometimes the problem is you’re fishing where there are no fish.

In this episode we see how I catch my first bass of 2020 while fishing in cold flooded water. I am casting a lipless crankbait where I know there are shad. First I catch a few shad to use as live bait but it turns out that isn’t how I catch today’s fish. I end up actually catching them on the crankbait with a shad technique. In the end, not only do I catch my first bass of the year but I also catch a nice freshwater drum as well. I’m totally excited to get that first bass.
